The Tank Museum, Bovington, Dorset

The Tank Museum, Bovington has the best collection of armoured vehicles in the world. Bovington has been the home of the tank since 1916 when it became the Tank Corps HQ. Today the Museum houses a unique collection of over 300 vehicles ~ including the world’s first tank, the feared German Tiger tank & the modern Challenger 2 ~ telling the story of armoured warfare from WWI to the present day.

As well as our standard tours, available on most dates, we can arrange visits incorporating one of the Special Events taking place throughout the year. You could even add a visit to Portsmouth’s historic dockyard or D-Day Museum on a two-day tour.
